6:32 pm
knocked four men into the water. two of them were wearing life vests and two were not. the sheriff's sergeant john gonzalez has more. >> the problem was a delay in the search. it happened at 10:00 but one of the subjects self-rescued and was able to crawl and make his way up to this farmhouse where we are at right now and call 911. an hour delay. the boat was pretty much right on the shoreline. not that far. maybe out 50 yards or something like that. and, so, that was how the two made it to shore. one was -- it went to shore and suffered hypothermia, the other subject made it up here to the farmhouse. >> reporter: so, that is two men in the hospital and two men still missing at sea. the coast guard is searching along with other agents all day. we understand that even at this hour there is a aircraft over the ocean and a helicopter. the 130 will drop theirs into the ocean watching which way the tides are carrying the flairs and aiding them in the search. the search will continue until dark and nobody is giving up hope at this ponent. two men are missing at sea and

6:34 pm
triple digits livermore, san skwroes a upping the average high, 82, i know what you want to know. tomorrow's highs. because it will be a hotter day tomorrow than what we experienced today. all of the way back up to 80 along the coast, 90s peninsula, 98 degrees morgan hill. east bay will climb all of the way up to 100 degrees in the hottest locations, recollect wise, north of the bay, talking 98 in santa rosa. we will pinpoint the neighborhood forecast. that is coming up later in the program. >> thanks. well, a new poll shows that californians are reluctant to abolish the death penalty. the los angeles times poll shows 38% of voters favor getting rid of it and 51% want to keep t. however, that gap narrows when voters are told the ballot issue will require convicted killers to work in prison and give their earnings to victim's families.
6:35 pm
we have more on the challenge facing both sides to make their point. >> right now, death row inmates sit in private cells, watching tv, talking to their lawyers, prop 34 putting an end to that and puts them to work. >> reporter: but makes them no longer death row inmates. sentencing them to life if prison without the possibility of parole. it also requires every person convicted of murder to work in prison and pay restitution to the victim's families. representatives from both sides spoke on cbs 5 eyewitness this morning. >> i think when i read the cases of the people who are on death row it is stunning in the evil we are looking at. >> reporter: steve is the district attorney for san mateo county. he is antiprop 34. >> there needs to be, in our society, some difference between people who commit more evil murders than others. >> reporter: but, statistics show that the punishment meant for the worst of the worst is not carried out. while california has more than 700 inmates on death row, only
6:36 pm
13 have actually been put to death since capitol punishment was written in the constitution in 1972. >> that means the death penalty is a false promis for victims. 99% of the time we have lied to victims when we said we were going to carry out an execution. all we have done is drag them through decades of appeal. >> reporter: costly appeals. some say the state could save $130 million each year with prop 34. but, he says that the factors gumming up the system that puts a stop to all executions since 2006 can be overcome. >> i do believe that if there is the political will, if our leaders will step up and do the right thing and work with everybody on all sides and say let's -- here is what will be done to make this better, then, we can have a viable death penalty. >> our mission is to get to those 13% undecided and explain to them the facts. life without parole is a better choice for everyone.
6:37 pm
>> the proposition is not a statistical heat in the poll with a no showing a slight lead. in the news room, cbs 5. >> the measure that would ease california's tough 3 strike law is finding strong support. easing penalties when the 3rd strike is something minor like shoplifting. the los angeles times poll shows 66% are in favor and only 20% are opposed. 14% are still undecided. gay rights activists are expected to protest the insulation of the archbishop this week. oakland's bishop will take over the poe seugz this thursday. he was a key driving force behind prop 8 which banned gay marriage thought the state. parishioners say he will be welcomed at most catholic church in the castro district. >> hopefully by attending services here he will see how important this church is and what it does. there are a lot of elements in
6:38 pm
the kagtic church that hold that position, a place like this challenges that on its own level. >> last month the bishop was arrest inside san diego and charged with drunk driving and he later apologized. former governor, schwarzenegger, is talking to "60 minutes" about politics, affairs and gay marriage. schwarzenegger admits to performing same sex weddings for two of his former staff members at the governor's office but he still will not say he is for gay marriage. >> i always said to them i have nothing against people doing what they want to do. if the couple wants to get married they should get married. i personally said a marriage is between a man and a woman but i would never enforce my will on people. i want people to make that decision. if they want to get married they should get married. >> you can watch all of the former governor's interview on "60 minutes" tonight after this newscast at 7:00. checking bay area headlines, san jose police are

vo: for years, sacramento politicians have chopped away funds for our schools. today, we're forty-seventh out of fifty in per-pupil funding. now these politicians say unless we send more tax dollars to sacramento, they'll cut education again. here's a new approach. prop thirty-eight sends billions in new education dollars straight to our local schools, and guarantees the politicians can't touch it. thirty-eight will restore the education cuts from sacramento. so remember this number.
